Easy stop near the station. No prizes for guessing what the theme food of this place is. Nice bonus that they do flights. Small but well chosen selection. Attentive service as well.

2015-09-26. The concept is amazing. Great food, very good selection of beers The interesting rotating printed tap menu with the substitutions predetermined is rather clever. (Unfortunately it hadn’t turned over much when we came back the next day.) We did a six beer sampler for 10GBP which seemed like a good option. Friendly staff, we initially couldn’t get in because it was so busy earlier in the evening - the guy at the door remembered Mabel and I when we came back. We shared a meat and cheese board, which was very good though the pancetta was fattier than my preference, and a six beer sampler flight. We also took a couple of bottles to go with us since we weren’t sure if we would make it to a bottle shop. The first night we sat in the basement, which I actually preferred. The communal tables upstairs aren’t my favorite despite being comparatively quiet on Sunday compared to Saturday. Our server Saturday was quiet but efficient and helpful. Sunday she was a bit more talkative but seemed to disappear at inopportune times. (Though it is possible we were just impatient.) They were backed up for food on Sunday for 30-40 minutes so we opted to eat elsewhere. The decor is both fantastic (pork themed murals and artwork are perfect) and just a bit pretentious or hipstery at the same time. Food and drink was very good overall. Bottle list had some gems, but the larger bottles seemed very expensive. Overall I quite like the place, but I would avoid peak times if at all possible. It loses a few points for not quite living up to my high expectations. It might on a return visit. Definitely worth a visit.

Visited on a Sunday lunchtime. Since my first visit the place has expanded into the shop next door. Great vibe to the place. Really good selection of beer well kept. Very clean and modern interior. Much more room to spread out. A must if visiting Leeds and only a couple of mins from the station. Tasting tray of 3 thirds available for £5 too of any beers.

Whoever cam up with this concept is a genius. Legs of ham AND good beer, comfortable chairs and a room you want to hang out in both by yourself or with friends. Great micros and local one-offs on offer, for mostly reasonable prices. Flights of tasters available too, so you can get ticking. Should certainly not be missed in a Leeds craft beer pub crawl.

A small, albeit lovely bar with a focus on charcuterie, cheese and craft beer...what’s not to love! I secured a seat at the bar and service was great and during peak time as well. A good selection of taps and casks from UK breweries and beyond. Overall quality was high here and the pricing reflected that.

A cool and cozy, modern beer bar offering three cask ales and six on keg alongside a fine selection of bottled craft beers. Their beer flight menu consists of six beers in 1/3 pint measures. Wood décor to a rather narrow and small room at the street level with more seating space downstairs. Lots of friendly and knowledgeable girls on work serving beer, cheese, cake, and meat. Background music during my stay included Bob Dylan and Neil Young. The Leeds Tap is almost next door and Tapped Leeds just around the corner (visited 07.07.2014).

On a side road that leads to the railway station and opposite the revamped Trinity Shopping Centre, this place was smaller than expected given the gravity of reviews that have gone before stepping into the bar. The upstairs entrance area used to be small but expanded into the next unit beside it in Autumn 2014 and is now a large open plan area with the bar central proceedings. It has also expanded its already decent selection of rotating casks and keg ale, the latter having a greater prominence. The underground downstairs area is where the main seating used to exists, but is still a comfortable enough place to enjoy the very mixed and thoughtful selection. It’s possible to buy the ales in 1/3 measures with a 10% discount for ordering a pint in this manner, which is very handy if you find a number of beers you wish to try. There’s some high volume ales here too so it can be handy in that respect too backed up by a fine bottled selection.
